The study of archaeology will broaden your understanding of the development of human society and culture.

You will learn about the methods that have led archaeologists to discover how and why complex societies emerged throughout the world.

Our courses provide:

  • A unique 50,000 year perspective on early human colonisation and cultural change in Asia and the Pacific
  • Novel insights into human social and material environments and interactions in the past
  • Preparation for a career that promotes new and exciting research into our human heritage, and the care of archaeological sites today
  • Training in the critical skills required in the systematic recording, analysis and interpretation of the cultural past

“Studying archaeology at Otago gave me a sound grounding in both the academic and practical aspects necessary to excel in this field, proving invaluable for my studies in the area of underwater archaeology.”
